So the question is:
- If I and my spouse agree fully and cooperate completely in applying for our divorce, will the Judge definitely grant the divorce order?
- Not necessarily. It depends.
Second, if you have been married more than 3 years, the conditions are much easier to satisfy (compared to if you have been married for less then 3 years).
Third, there are 5 conditions. Here, we have good news and bad news. The good news is you do not need to satisfy all 5 conditions. You do not even have to satisfy 2 of the conditions. However, you must satisfy at least one of the 5 conditions in order to get your divorce.
Fourth, the 5 conditions are:
- you and your spouse have been separated (living apart) for at least 3 years and your spouse will sign a Consent to the divorce.
- you and your spouse have been separated (living apart) for at least 4 years.
- your spouse has deserted you (abandoned you and refused to come home) for at least 2 years.
- your spouse has committed adultery and you find it intolerable to live with him (or her).
- your spouse has behaved in such a way that you cannot reasonably be expected to live with him (or her) ("unreasonable
Fifth, if you have been married for less than 3 years, the conditions are much stricter. In this situation, there are 2 conditions.
The 2 conditions are:
- exceptional hardship suffered by the plaintiff (ie, the party who is applying for the divorce); or
- exceptional depravity on the part of the defendant (ie, the party against whom the divorce case is against).
